Desde Puno, podemos tomar el tren a Cusco, la cual se supone es Hermosa,

From Puno we can take the train to Cusco, which is supposed to be beautiful,

The phrase is correct as I found all kinds of examples on the web. It just seems strange to me to see "se supone" and then a conjugated verb (es) directly afterwards. Ah, maybe it's something like the following:
- la cual es hermosa (se supone)

Steven, I think you hit on the head with ​se pone​ being a parenthetical phrase in nature.  It can also mean, "one supposes."

Steven: I like these little grammatical conundrums you have been posting. However, I was able to work this one out and it made sense to me. Which worries me, since you found it puzzling.

Taking the train from Cusco to visit Machu Picchu has long been on my "Someday I Will" list.

Worried? Dude! You're the man here in the Spanish forum.

I actually did understand the phrase but couldn't understand why when I looked closer at the verb conjugations. the-hefay confirmed what I suspected: Desde Puno, podemos tomar el tren a Cusco, la cual (se supone) es Hermosa...
